Log Wall Packages

Introduction

A log wall package consists of logs, supplies and labour to construct a main/ground floor level and this can also include a second story (loft), available in both our stockade style and the traditional style log wall. Below, we have listed both log wall styles; breaking them out by main/ground floor level and second story (loft). In addition to each style of log wall, we have included building materials, supplies & materials and labour for the main/ground floor level; and information about walls, the floor and roof for the second story/(loft).

With the information on this page and the flexibility of our pricing tools; you can apply your building ideas and get a good estimate of what we have to offer. We highly recommend to visit our pricing tools page. You can price a log wall package by area, dimensions or the sum of all rooms.

Near the end of this page we've listed available log home extras. They range from dormers and trusses to stairs. We've also included log home extras in our pricing tools. Simply click the option to add it to the estimate and indicate how many you need.

We would like to finish this introduction by bringing your attention to the "The home owner is responsible for the following" section at the bottom of this page. When you buy a log wall package you are buying the log shell, the essence that makes a log home, a log home.
